Clinicopathological features of Churg-Strauss syndrome-associated neuropathy. (1/216)

We assessed the clinicopathological features of 28 patients with peripheral neuropathy associated with Churg-Strauss syndrome. Initial symptoms attributable to neuropathy were acute painful dysaesthesiae and oedema in the dysaesthetic portion of the distal limbs. Sensory and motor involvement mostly showed a pattern of mononeuritis multiplex in the initial phase, progressing into asymmetrical polyneuropathy, restricted to the limbs. Parallel loss of myelinated and unmyelinated fibres due to axonal degeneration was evident as decreased or absent amplitudes of sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials, indicating acute massive axonal loss. Epineurial necrotizing vasculitis was seen in 54% of cases; infiltrates consisted mainly of CD8-positive suppressor/cytotoxic and CD4-positive helper T lymphocytes. Eosinophils were present in infiltrates, but in smaller numbers than lymphocytes. CD20-positive B lymphocytes were seen only occasionally. Deposits of IgG, C3d, IgE and major basic protein were scarce. The mean follow-up period was 4.2 years, with a range of 8 months to 10 years. Fatal outcome was seen only in a single patient, indicating a good survival rate. The patients who responded well to the initial corticosteroid therapy within 4 weeks regained self-controlled functional status in longterm follow-up (modified Rankin score was < or = 2), while those not responding well to the initial corticosteroid therapy led a dependent existence (P < 0.01). In addition the patients with poor functional outcomes had significantly more systemic organ damage caused by vasculitis (P < 0.05). Necrotizing vasculitis mediated by cytotoxic T cells, leading to ischaemic changes, appears to be a major cause of Churg-Strauss syndrome-associated neuropathy. The initial clinical course and the extent of systemic vasculitic lesions may influence the long-term functional prognosis.  (+info)

Pulmonary eosinophilia associated with montelukast. (2/216)

Antileukotriene drugs are new therapeutic agents that have recently been approved for the treatment of asthma. Several cases of eosinophilic conditions including Churg-Strauss syndrome have been reported to be associated with zafirlukast, a cysteinyl leukotriene type 1 receptor antagonist. So far no other leukotriene modifier has been associated with the syndrome. The case history is presented of a man with allergic rhinitis and asthma who had received intermittent pulse therapy with oral corticosteroids. Pulmonary eosinophilia developed while he was receiving treatment with montelukast, a chemically distinct cysteinyl leukotriene type 1 receptor antagonist. After discontinuation of montelukast therapy and administration of systemic corticosteroids the patient's symptoms reversed rapidly and there was prompt resolution of the pulmonary infiltrates. We believe that cysteinyl leukotriene type 1 receptor antagonists are safe and effective drugs for most patients with asthma but caution is needed for those with more severe disease who require systemic corticosteroids, especially if they show characteristics of the atypical allergic diathesis seen in the prodromal phase of Churg-Strauss syndrome.  (+info)

No association between neutrophil FcgammaRIIa allelic polymorphism and anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-positive systemic vasculitis. (3/216)

ANCA, implicated as having a pathogenic role in systemic vasculitis, can activate tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-primed neutrophils by cross-linking surface-expressed ANCA antigens with neutrophil FcgammaRIIa receptors to release reactive oxygen species. The FcgammaRIIa receptor exists as polymorphic variants, R131 and H131, which differ in their ability to ligate human IgG2 and IgG3. Neutrophils homozygous for the FcgammaRIIa-H131 allotype bind more efficiently to IgG3 than the FcgammaRIIa-R131 allotype and are the only human FcgammaR which bind IgG2. Our aim was to determine whether the homozygous FcgammaRIIa-H131 individuals are more susceptible to developing ANCA-associated systemic vasculitis and nephritis due to differential IgG binding and activation. FcgammaRIIa allotype was determined by both allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern blotting with allele-specific oligonucleotide probes end-labelled with 32P-gammaATP, after PCR amplification of genomic FcgammaRIIa DNA in 107 Caucasian patients with ANCA+ vasculitis (of whom 89 had renal disease) and 100 ethnically matched controls. Phenotyping of neutrophil FcgammaRIIa alleles was confirmed in some patients by quantitative flow cytometry using murine MoAbs 41H16 and IV.3. Of the patients with ANCA+ systemic vasculitis, 75 had ANCA with specificity for proteinase 3 and 32 with specificity for myeloperoxidase. Overall, no skewing in FcgammaRIIa allotypes was seen in patients compared with controls. No significant increase of the FcgammaRIIa-H131 allotype was found amongst patients irrespective of ANCA specificity, and no association between the FcgammaRIIa allotype and nephritis was found. Our data suggest that the FcgammaRIIa receptor allotype is not a major factor predisposing to the development of ANCA+ systemic vasculitis, or to nephritis.  (+info)

Inflammatory cells and cellular activation in the lower respiratory tract in Churg-Strauss syndrome. (4/216)

BACKGROUND: To obtain insight into the mechanisms of tissue injury in lung disease due to Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS), the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cell profile and the levels in the BAL fluid of cell products released by activated eosinophils and neutrophils were assessed. METHODS: Thirteen patients with active progressive CSS (n = 7) or CSS in partial remission (n = 6) underwent clinical staging and bronchoalveolar lavage. The levels of eosinophil cationic protein (ECP), myeloperoxidase (MPO), and peroxidase activity in the BAL fluid were determined and the results were compared with those of 19 patients with pulmonary active Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) and nine control subjects. RESULTS: In patients with progressive CSS the BAL cell profile was dominated by eosinophils, neutrophil elevation being the exception. The eosinophilia was associated with high ECP levels (4.39 ng/ml and 0. 40 ng/ml in the two CSS groups compared with unmeasurable values in the controls). Individual patients with highly active CSS also had raised MPO levels, comparable to the levels in the most active WG patients. Peroxidase activity in the BAL fluid was 1.26 U/ml and 0. 10 U/ml in the two groups of patients with CSS and 0.20 U/ml in the controls. Pulmonary disease in patients with WG was characterised by an extensive increase in MPO (0.30 ng/ml versus 0.13 ng/ml in the controls) together with high peroxidase activity in the BAL fluid (4. 37 U/ml), but only a small increase in ECP levels was seen. No correlation was found between the ECP and MPO levels in patients with CSS which suggests that eosinophil and neutrophil activation vary independently of each other. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that, in addition to eosinophil activation, neutrophil activation is an important feature in some patients with highly active CSS. The balance of neutrophil and eosinophil involvement appears to be variable and this may be one explanation for the individually variable treatment requirements of patients with CSS.  (+info)

Disease of the month. The Churg Strauss Syndrome. (5/216)

The Churg Strauss Syndrome is an eosinophil-associated small vessel vasculitis. Although its pathogenesis may be distinctive and the association with severe late-onset asthma typical, the clinical features during the vasculitic phase widely overlap with those of the other forms of necrotizing vasculitis, and no single clinical or histologic feature is pathognomic of the condition. Renal involvement is common, although usually mild, and even when severe it tends to respond well to treatment. The prognosis for both patient and renal survival with adequate treatment is in general good. The optimal treatment strategy, however, is uncertain, and may differ from that for the other vasculitides. In particular, in contrast to Wegener's granulomatosis, the need for routine cyclophosphamide treatment is unconfirmed and requires further study.  (+info)

Involvement of soluble CD95 in Churg-Strauss syndrome. (6/216)

Deficiency of CD95 (Apo-1/Fas)-mediated apoptosis has recently been found in some autoimmune lymphoproliferative disorders due to inherited mutations of the CD95 gene. In this study, impairment of CD95 ligand-mediated killing of lymphocytes and eosinophils in Churg-Strauss Syndrome (CSS), which was a result of variation of CD95 receptor isoform expression, is demonstrated. Compared to those from healthy individuals, peripheral blood lymphocytes from eight CSS patients exhibit a switch from the membrane-bound CD95 receptor expression to its soluble splice variant, which protects from CD95L-mediated apoptosis. In five out of seven CSS patients recurrent oligoclonal T cell expansions were found, all using a Vbeta-gene from the Vbeta21 family associated with similar CDR3 motifs, indicating the predominance of T cell clones of a similar specificity in the CSS patients. In two of them, the effect of immunosuppressive therapy was studied. In both cases aberrant overexpression of the soluble CD95 receptor isoform and deviations from normal TCR Vbeta-gene usage normalized in parallel with the clinical improvement. Furthermore, soluble CD95 was identified as a survival factor for eosinophils rescuing eosinophils from apoptosis in the absence of growth factors in vitro. Given the role of eosinophils as effector cells in CSS, these findings suggest that soluble CD95 may be mechanistically involved in the disease.  (+info)

Subclinical alveolar bleeding in pulmonary vasculitides: correlation with indices of disease activity. (7/216)

Haemosiderin-laden alveolar macrophages are a common finding in patients with alveolar bleeding. Iron-positive macrophages, suggestive of subclinical alveolar bleeding, were found to be fairly common in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid in primary systemic vasculitis but uncommon in collagen vascular diseases (CVDs) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To substantiate the impression that subclinical alveolar bleeding may be a feature distinguishing between these disorders, fibreoptic bronchoscopy and BAL were performed in 49 patients with active Wegener's granulomatosis or Churg-Strauss syndrome and 44 patients with CVDs or RA, all of them without clinically manifest alveolar bleeding. The percentage of iron-positive cells was compared with clinical and radiological findings. Only a minority of the CVD and RA patients had iron-positive alveolar macrophages; the 95th percentile of the median number of such cells was 5%. Fifty-three per cent of the patients in the vasculitis group had >5% iron-positive cells, with individual counts ranging up to 95%. Patients with iron-positive macrophages had more extensive disease, more frequent microhaematuria, a higher antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody titre, a higher myeloperoxidase concentration in the BAL fluid and somewhat more frequent low-attenuation opacities in pulmonary high-resolution computed tomography than the patients with a low iron-positive cell count. In conclusion, subclinical alveolar bleeding was, indeed, a common finding in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis, which distinguished these disorders from lung disease due to collagen vascular diseases or rheumatoid arthritis. Its association with indices of disease activity, although weak in this cross-sectional study, merits a longitudinal study of its value for the long-term monitoring of vasculitis patients.  (+info)

An approach to diagnosis and initial management of systemic vasculitis. (8/216)

Systemic vasculitis occurs in a heterogeneous group of primary disorders or can be a manifestation of infection, an adverse drug reaction, malignancy or a connective tissue disease. A vasculitic process should be suspected in patients with unexplained ischemia or multiple organ involvement, especially when such features as polymyalgia rheumatica, inflammatory arthritis, palpable purpura, glomerulonephritis or multiple mononeuropathy are also present. The clinical features of systemic vasculitis depend on the organs involved and, in turn, organ involvement is largely influenced by the size of the affected blood vessels. The diagnostic work-up should be tailored to the clinical situation and geared toward a tissue or angiographic diagnosis, bearing in mind that the findings from these studies are not always pathognomonic. Emphasis should also be placed on exclusion of a secondary process. The diagnosis of the specific type of vasculitis may be made on the basis of the clinical features and the histopathologic or angiographic findings. Initial therapy for most types of systemic vasculitis consists of high-dose corticosteroids, with the addition of immunosuppressive therapy in certain patients.  (+info)

In 1990 The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) established criteria that distinguished Churg Strauss Syndrome from other vasculitic diseases. Criteria for the classification of Churg Strauss Syndrome was developed by comparing 20 patients who had this diagnosis with 787 control patients with other forms of vasculitis. Six disease features were selected as being those that best distinguished it from other vasculitic diseases.

Churg-Strauss syndrome is a disorder characterized by the inflammation of blood vessels, which can cause damage to organs and tissues as blood flow becomes restricted. Also known as allergic angiitis, this disorder produces a wide range of symptoms, which often includes asthma. Due to the fact Churg-Strauss syndrome is very rare, little is known about the condition and theres no cure. However, with the use of certain medications, symptoms can be managed.. Churg-Strauss syndrome is often difficult to diagnose because the symptoms produced often mimic other conditions. There are three different stages of this disorder, and each produce their own symptoms. The first stage (allergic stage) produces every day symptoms such as asthma, hay fever, sinus pain and sinus inflammation. The second stage of the disorder (eosinophilic stage) produces more severe symptoms than the first stage. The second stage produces symptoms of hypereosinophilia, which can affect the lungs and digestive tract. This ...
Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), formerly called Churg-Strauss syndrome, is a form of vasculitis-a family of rare diseases characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels, which can restrict blood flow and damage vital organs and tissues. EGPA is one of the rarest forms of vasculitis and primarily affects the small blood vessels. Individuals diagnosed with EGPA usually have a history of asthma or allergies.. EGPA can affect the lungs, sinuses, skin, heart, intestinal tract, kidneys, nerves and other organs. EGPA is known as an ANCA-associated vasculitis, referring to a blood protein (anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody) that attacks the bodys own cells and tissues. Other forms of ANCA-associated vasculitis include granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) and microscopic polyangiitis (MPA). The detection of ANCA in the blood can support a diagnosis of EGPA in some patients.. EGPA is a serious but treatable disease. Treatment typically includes corticosteroids such as ...

Movie 3 Movie 4. Conclusion:This case demonstrates the range of cardiac involvement in Churg-Strauss syndrome is beyond that of cardiac hypereosinophilia characterised by myocarditis, endomyocardial fibrosis, intracardiac thrombus and heart failure. Coronary arteritis and acute infarction is increasingly reported in these patients1,2. Churg-Strauss syndrome is primarily characterised by vasculitis affecting both small and medium-sized blood vessels. Cardiac findings are present in about 50% of cases and are responsible for almost half of all deaths3. Cardiac involvement is reported to be more frequent in the ANCA- negative phenotype4. It has also been shown that the cardiac involvement is common even when their vasculitis is in clinical remission as was seen in this highlighted case5. CMR scanning this patient helped differentiate eosinophilic myocarditis from myocardial infarction by using tissue characterisation and the coronary pattern of late enhancement. The patients therapy was changed to ...
Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA; also known as Churg-Strauss syndrome [CSS] or allergic granulomatosis) is an extremely rare autoimmune condition that causes inflammation of small and medium-sized blood vessels (vasculitis) in persons with a history of airway allergic hypersensitivity (atopy). It usually manifests in three stages. The early (prodromal) stage is marked by airway inflammation; almost all patients experience asthma and/or allergic rhinitis. The second stage is characterized by abnormally high numbers of eosinophils (hypereosinophilia), which causes tissue damage, most commonly to the lungs and the digestive tract. The third stage consists of vasculitis, which can eventually lead to cell death and can be life-threatening. This condition is now called eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis to remove all eponyms from the vasculitides. To facilitate the transition, it was referred to as eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Churg-Strauss) for a ...

abstractNote = {In Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) it is important to detect cardiac involvement, which predicts poor prognosis. This study evaluated whether {sup 123}I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy could detect cardiac damage and predict cardiac events in CSS. {sup 123}I-MIBG scintigraphy was performed in 28 patients with CSS, 12 of whom had cardiac involvement. The early and delayed heart to mediastinum ratio (early H/M and delayed H/M) and washout rate were calculated by using {sup 123}I-MIBG scintigraphy and compared with those in control subjects. Early H/M and delayed H/M were significantly lower and the washout rate was significantly higher in patients with cardiac involvement than in those without and in controls (early H/M, p = 0.0024, p = 0.0001; delayed H/M, p = 0.0002, p = 0.0001; washout rate, p = 0.0012, p = 0.0052 vs those without and vs controls, respectively).

We conducted a Pubmed (MEDLINE) search of case and series referring to any kind of thrombotic events described in three conditions characterised by persistent blood eosinophilia, i.e. the hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), the Churg Strauss syndrome (CSS), and parasitic infestations from 1966 to ...
Objective: Hypereosinophilic syndromes are a heterogeneous group of uncommon disorders characterized by the presence of marked peripheral blood eosinophilia, tissue eosinophilia, or both, resulting in a wide variety of clinical manifestations, often without an identifiable cause. Churg-Strauss syndrome is a systemic vasculitis characterized by prominent peripheral eosinophilia, asthma and systemic involvement. The presence of mild to severe eosinophilia and systemic involvement raise the search of many trigger factor that need to be ruled out. Distinguishing CSS from idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome may be particularly challenging, especially in ANCA negative patients. Methods: The aim of the present study was to present a small case series of patients referred to a Rheumatology Unit for mild to severe eosinophilia and signs and symptoms of systemic involvement and to outline the clinical significance of molecular biology in the work-up of hypereosinophilia. Results: Eleven patients with ...

part of that is self education. IF you read only one thing about your ANCA related Vasculitis all year… then THIS should be it. Seriously, not kidding.. First off Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA, Wegeners granulomatosis), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA, Churg-Strauss syndrome) are termed the antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)- associated vasculitides. Even IF you are ANCA Negative (50% of CSS/EGPA patients you are still considered to have an ANCA Associated Vasculitis.. On June 23rd, 2016 a new document was published that updated the guidelines for treatment of ANCA Associated Vasculitis. This was the first major revision of treatment guidelines since 2009 and in many ways it is a game changer because of the newer biological medicines. It was created by European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR). Which includes doctors, nurses, researchers and even a patient.. Fifteen recommendations were developed, covering general ...
Introduction. Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a systemic vasculitis that is commonly associated with cutaneous involvement (40%-81%).1-3. Case Report. The patient was a 53-year-old man with a history of rhinitis, asthma and eosinophilic pneumonia, diagnosed 4 years earlier, who presented with pruritic lesions on the scalp that had developed 7 days before. There were 4 circular plaques measuring 2-4cm, that were skin-colored or erythematous, with an infiltrated border and small scabs (Fig. 1A and C). Biopsy revealed a superficial inflammatory infiltrate made up of lymphocytes and eosinophils; there were neutrophils in the vessel wall, with no fibrinoid necrosis; we also detected histiocytes interspersed with degenerated collagen in the superficial and reticular dermis (Fig. 1B). Direct immunofluorescence and Ziehl-Neelsen staining were negative. We found leukocytosis with 15,900cells/μL; eosinophilia (24.7%; 3900cells/μL); and complement C3 of 83.7mg/dL. Antinuclear ...

Putting a name to what I have been dealing with for the past 17 years certainly made me feel a little less like I had imagined all of the bizarre issues. It seemed to justify the times that I moved with my job from one state to another; each time enlisting a new Dr. and trying to explain to them why I needed a steroid shot to stay healthy. Six months in to this Churg-Strauss (also known as EPGA and CSS) diagnosis and each new little diagnosis that pops up under the Churg-Strauss Syndrome umbrella, I dont feel so relieved anymore at knowing what it is. I want it to go away. I want to turn back time and pretend that I could have done something differently to have prevented it choosing my body for its home.. Likely what has happened is that I have moved into a different phase of the disease. I had a lull for a few years where I was able to get a random steroid shot occasionally and things were low key and I as fairly healthy. In my mind I had just gotten over the allergies.. In reality, the ...
Visual deterioration occurs in two peaks. The first peak manifests as progression of the ongoing flare on an unchanged steroid dose, typically during the first 6 days.25 The second peak occurs after weeks or months of tapering treatment. Relapses increase with reduction of corticosteroid therapy and were seen in 19% of patients within 1 year.26. Reasons for progression of visual loss despite treatment may include hypoperfusion of the optic disc, treatment delay, inadequate steroid dose, quick taper or hypercoagulability with retinal artery infarction, possibly due to steroid therapy.

Heart disease responsive to steroids is well described in many disorders, including sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, polyarteritis nodosa, myocarditis and Churg-Strauss syndrome. The underlying disorder is often obvious and the response is usually slow. We describe a woman who had severe left ventricular failure, cardiac dilatation and pericardial effusion which were rapidly rectified by steroid therapy. Steroid withdrawal led to recurrence of signs, which were reversed by recommencing steroids. The aetiology was not determined.

Eosinophils are granulocytes that contain basic granules (i.e. secretory vesicles) that kill large parasites and are linked to various forms of allergies. Eosinophilic pneumonia (EP) is a broadly defined disease that is characterized by an infiltration of eosinophils in lung alveolar tissue. EP includes Churg-Strauss Syndrome (a rare autoimmune disease), chronic EP and acute EP (the difference between the two is the presence of eosinophils in the blood/tissues and only the tissue, respectfully). Individuals with EP are often found to have an increased concentration of macrophages and dendritic cells, important innate immune response mediators. Symptoms include shortness of breath, weight loss, fever, and even respiratory failure, while causes range from parasitic infection, immune system dysfunction, medication, and environmental stimuli like tobacco smoke and dust. Although symptoms can be serious, few is known about the cellular mechanisms behind EP, specifically macrophage and DC recruitment ...

Results A 14-year-old male previously misdiagnosed as cutaneous anthrax was referred with a 2-month history of multiple wide and deep ulceronecrotic lesions in lower extremities, started after contact with animals (1a). Complete blood count (CBC) revealed anemia (hemoglobin: 8.5 g/dl, hematocrit: 26.9%), eosinophilia (4100/mm3) and thrombocytopenia (34000/mm3). Peripheral blood smear also revealed marked eosinophilia (42%). Infectious etiologies such as cutaneous anthrax, leishmaniosis, aspergillosis and nonspecific agents were excluded by gram staining, wound-blood-bone marrow cultures and serological investigations. Bone marrow aspiration was performed owing to the prominent eosinophilia, anemia and thrombocytopenia. However, the result was also pointing out eosinophilia without signs of eosinophilic leukemia. Although ANCAs were negative, the robust clinical manifestations concordant with EGPA (e.g. eosinophilia, increased Ig E level, history of asthma, vasculitic lesions) had led us to ...

On that tragic December day when the Taylors lost their mother, a 35-year-old husband and father of two, Mike Strauss, was preparing for his final Christmas. Strauss had Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, a long-term progressive disease of the liver and gallbladder. Years earlier Strauss had refused a liver transplant because he was feeling so healthy and strong, he wanted the liver to go to someone who needed it more than he did. Fast forward to 2001 and Strauss was dying, his doctor predicting he only had a few weeks left. Bonnie Taylors liver saved Mike Strausss life.. Intermountain Donor Services (IDS) is an organization that puts the families of organ donors and living donors in contact with transplant recipients. Kami and Zach Taylor got a letter from the woman who received their mothers kidney, but it was soon after their mothers and neither Kami or Zach felt ready to connect with her. In 2003, Mike Strauss sent a letter to IDS and they forwarded it on to Taylors. This time, both Kami ...

Strausss introduction of the hidden culture in Seaweed is marvelously mysterious and definitely interesting on many levels. The main story background is brilliantly developed and pops to life on the pages, sparkling like the shining waters of the rich and vast deep blue sea. The characters are fun to get to know on a more personal level, as readers delve into each of their stories and bring them to life across the pages. Some are deliciously likable and easy to connect with, while others may have a tendency to fall a bit flat at times. The world of the Mer-People that Strauss created, is exciting, fun, and adventurous ...

The Bachmann-Strauss Foundation has funded numerous studies identifying genes associated with dystonia-Parkinsonism syndrome, as well as follow up research to understand the molecular pathways that underlie the diseases. Major genetic discoveries supported by the Foundation include:
Currently, there is no specific test to definitely diagnose PD. The diagnosis is made by a neurologist following a thorough examination. An MRI of the brain may be ordered to exclude other brain diseases. However, there are no clear changes on the MRI that can conclusively tell that a person has PD.
DBS on one side of the brain usually affects only symptoms on the opposite side of the body. Most patients have symptoms on both sides of the body and thus require both sides of the brain to be implanted for maximal benefit. Some surgical centers only perform staged

An examination of every score that Chicago students earned on state-mandated standardized tests last year reveals that charter schools - which Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) has been promoting - dont perform any better than traditional public schools.
North Dakota broke new ground nearly a century ago, but the true potential of publicly owned banks remains to be explored. Nearly all of our money today is created by banks when they extend loans. (See the Chicago Federal Reserves Modern Money Mechanics, which begins, The actual process of money creation takes place primarily in banks.) We the people have given away our sovereign money-creating power to private, for-profit lending institutions, which have used it to siphon wealth from the productive economy. If we were to take that power back, we could generate the credit we need to underwrite a whole cornucopia of projects that we dont even consider because we think we lack the money. We have the labor and we have the materials; we just lack the liquidity necessary to put them together to create products and services ...
Read struck six boundaries, mainly through the off-side, but became the first of two quick wickets when he drove at a wide delivery from seamer Gayan Wijekoon to provide a catch behind. Rikki Clarke soon followed when he pushed forward and was bowled through the gate by left-arm spinner Dinuk Hettiarachchi.. Strauss kept the scoring rate healthy alongside Anthony McGrath, leading the side in Vaughans absence, and another Yorkshireman Gareth Batty.. Batty hit two sixes off seamer Akalanka Ganegama in one over but was caught on the midwicket boundary going for a third and Strauss followed in the penultimate over.. Englands attack struggled to contain the Sri Lankan top order, however, as Michael Vandort, a two-cap Test player, and Saman Jayantha provided a rapid response to their chase.. Jayantha began the flurry of boundaries with a pulled six off Richard Johnson and Vandort followed that with two fours off Anderson in the next over, the fifth of the innings.. They kept up the tempo until a ...
